Friday Foodday

Happy Friday lovebugs!

Here are my favorite recipes this week. 

Pineapple Rum Sunset Punch
c/o The Kitchn
1 (20-ounce) can pineapple rings in juice, drained
1 cup grenadine
1 cup white rum
1/2 cup Campari
1 (46-ounce) can unsweetened pineapple juice, chilled
1/2 cup lime juice
1 (12-ounce) bottle ginger beer, chilled

Place the pineapple rings on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and freeze until firm.
Combine the grenadine, rum, and Campari in a pitcher and stir until well-combined. Slowly pour in the pineapple juice, then lime juice, and finally ginger beer. Garnish the pitcher or individual glasses with the frozen pineapple rings. Serve the punch over ice.

Sweet and Spicy Ribs

  • 5 cups of your favorite barbecue sauce
  • ¼ cup honey or brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Cajun seasoning
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder

  1. Whisk together the barbecue sauce, brown sugar or honey, Cajun seasoning, garlic powder and onion powder in a medium bowl. Set aside 1 cup of the mixture to use for dipping sauce in the refrigerator.
  2. Set the ribs in a large slow cooker. Pour the sauce over ribs. Cover and cook on low 8 hours or until meat is very tender.
  3. Uncover and remove ribs. Skim fat from sauce. Serve with saved sauce.
